Storage Solutions To Get The Most From Your Small Space

With the skyrocketing house prices, more and more of us are having to settle for smaller properties, or developing our homes to accommodate our growing families. When space is tight, storage really comes into its own and is a smart, effective and affordable way to maximise the area you live in, while concealing all the clutter that comes with having kids. There are many clever storage solutions on the market, with sites like Pinterest giving us creative ideas and DIY projects to maximise smaller living areas, you can make a modest family home feel grand and spacious. 

In every room in the house, there’s potential to save space by investing in smart furniture that’s multifunctional but also, importantly, looks great. The bathroom is often the smallest room in the house, and probably the most frequently used. There are many clever ways you can reclaim precious space in the bathroom, and this revolving mirror and concealed storage unit from Heal’s is just one of them. It’s stylish and functional, and this slim design will still hide all your bottles, jars and lotions.

Next, you can take on the kitchen by making all your cupboards easy to access with storage solutions designed to organise and maximise cupboard space. Consider these chrome baskets for kitchen cabinets and this stacking shelf for cupboards.

There are heaps of ways you can claim back space in your bedroom by buying multi-functional furniture that looks great and saves on space. This headboard with storage from Ikea is stylish and ideal for teenage and adult bedrooms alike. Cleverly conceal books and display ornaments without the need for a standalone shelving unit. Another nifty storage option is a storage box for the end of the bed. This blanket box from Arlo & Jacob is well made, stylish and can be upholstered in the fabric of your choice so that it will fit in with your interior scheme seamlessly. You can store blankets, cushions, bed linen and clothes and it doubles as a place to sit.

When it comes to the living room, you want to maintain a sense of warmth and comfort, filling the area with comfortable furniture, with enough floor space for the kids to play. A sleek TV storage unit, like this one below from Dwell, will allow you to hide away toys, DVDs, games, books and all the clutter you want to keep out of sight when it’s not in use. Its mid-century design is on-trend, and its muted colours make it easy to work into almost any interior scheme.

Finally, the hallway is the first area you see when you walk into your home so you will want to try and make a good impression, but this can be hard to do when the kids have other ideas with their abandoned shoes, sports kit and school bags. Consider an affordable, smart hallway storage unit, like this one, which will clear the area and look stylish in the process.

There are so many storage options available that you should never feel limited by your small space. Use websites to research and compare prices online, and if you have time over the weekends, you could even attempt making some storage solutions yourself to save money and add a personal touch to your home.
